With the right company, repairing and replacing your siding should be stress-free, but there are some potential inconveniences that you will want to prepare for to make the process as smooth as possible. Keep reading for tips that will get you ready for your installation day.
The installation crew will need to park a dumpster near your home in order to dispose of the old siding and construction debris. Typically, this will be dropped off the day before installation, so you will want to clear your driveway or the parking area in front of your home. It is also a good idea to park your car somewhere down the street during installation so that there is plenty of parking for workers and you can minimize the chances of any damage happening to your car.
Lots of Noise
Workers will be hammering away at the sides of your home, which can cause a lot of noise and disruption. If you have children and pets that are home during the day, you will want to make alternative plans to keep them calm and happy. In addition, if you work from home, you will want to make other arrangements.
Loss of Power
There is a good chance that the installers will need to shut off power to exterior lights and outlets. Hopefully, this won’t affect indoor appliances, but it is something to take into consideration.
Remove Objects from Walls
The installation process can cause your walls to vibrate, which can mean that picture frames and other delicate items may fall off the wall. Removing these objects and safely storing them prior to installation is a minor inconvenience that will protect your possessions in the long run.
Experts also recommend that you take the time to clear your outdoor areas so that workers have easy access to the exterior of the home. This means removing pots, trimming back trees and bushes, and generally cleaning up. This will help to expedite the installation process
